Tasting Notes

Undoubtedly one of the finest vintages ever made. The aromas are incredibly refined with notes of red cherries, herbs and minerals which develop in the glass. The palate has a very elegant structure with exceptional finesse. Firm tannins are balanced by wonderful depth with sweet black cherry and red berry fruits, intermingled with herbs and exotic spices. There is a superb mineral finish and great acidity which gives wonderful balance. This is a magnificent wine which will develop for 30 years or more.

Reviews & Scores

Intense flavors of blackberries and flowers. Sexy and dressed up to go out. Full and velvety. Intense and juicy with velvety tannins and a long finish. Try in 2014. Score: 96 points James Suckling
